SEW Much Fun!

It's a lot of fun to sew on cards.  Adding just a little as a border can draw special attention to your card.


It's a little harder to notice in this one with the french knots.  I went around twice in a wavy pattern, crossing over at different spots.   Yes, french knots takes a bit of time, but very relaxing to do.  I did these ones while watching (sort of watching) TV.


I used the large scallop Big Shot die as a border for this block.  Just a little sewing around two edges, with  brads to "tie" the block together.


The flower was made with the five petal punch.  I quilted the whole block which give it a nice look,  but can be a little time consuming pulling the threads to the back just like on a fabric quilt!


SEW, IF YOU HAVEN'T TRIED SEWING ON CARDS, GIVE IT A TRY!
